Class: Head Hopping and Head Hunting: Deep Point of View Writing

Head Hopping and Head Hunting: Deep Point of View Writing with Tracy Townsend

Next class date is Sunday, April 23, 2023, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific Time. You can purchase the video only for $50; $40 for Patreon supporters.

Writers are often encouraged to focus on developing their voice, much of which comes from how they approach point of view in their work. In this class, you’ll work with Tracy Townsend, author of the Thieves of Fate series from Pyr, to hone your understanding of point of view: who should be telling the story; what tools are available to you, whether you’re in first, second, or third person; how to approach “problems” of point of view; and how to surprise your reader and deepen your storytelling through powerful use of character voice in narration.

Join Tracy Townsend for a workshop in which she teaches you how to dive deep within your protagonist’s point of view.

Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. Classes are recorded for the benefit of class members only.

Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive the discount or free classes, depending on their support level and can also receive the video afterward for $40.

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, Venmo, or some other means.
  • Whether or not you are a former student or Patreon supporter
  • How you heard about Cat’s classes

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for up to three classes.

It was enjoyable, helpful, and has given me tools to use in thinking about how I approach POV and character agency. Highly recommend these classes if you have the bandwidth now.
